Our first back to school Block Party was amazing. We weren’t sure what to expect. Pastor Anthony set a goal of 400 people attending, and we blew past that goal.
I had a chance to talk to many attendees and I heard repeatedly they had often driven past our church, but they didn’t have any idea what we were about. While we pride ourselves as being a very welcoming congregation, and we truly are, to our neighbors we were just a building on a tree covered lot.
Wednesday we changed that perception for all those who attended. We showed them we are truly a welcoming congregation that reaches out to our community. As our photo gallery shows, this was a fun event for everyone involved.
